November 10 2007

The Shirt Off Jayne's Back. The California Browncoats are helping Adam Baldwin auction off 13 shirts that he wore during the filming of Firefly and Serenity to benefit the Marine Corps - Law Enforcement Foundation.

The auctions will start November 14, 2007 and will last until all are sold. Check the link for a picture of each shirt, along with a description and the auction start date.

Also, the BSG script donated by Mark Shepard for auction to benefit St. Jude's Children's Research is still up for grabs for the next few hours.

Adam rocks! :-D
$1,200 for the BSG script already? Awesome!!! Good on Mark and Adam for pitching in to help two fine charities. :)
What is the Marine Corps-Law Enforcement foundation?
*sigh* I'm gonna bid, but i don't stand a chance. Some of these shirts are, shall we say, Iconic? Best of luck to all who bid, and kudos to Adam and Mark for their shiny donations :)
toast asked: What is the Marine Corps-Law Enforcement foundation?

Marine Corps-Law Enforcement Foundation

Through the continuous support of our donors, we have distributed aid with a value of more than $29,000,000.00 to eligible children. This assistance was primarily rendered to children of Marines or Federal law enforcement personnel who were killed on duty or died under extraordinary circumstances while serving our country at home or abroad. These funds enable us to provide these children with scholarships for their higher education. When a child of a United States Marine is afflicted with a physical or mental disability and requires special medical equipment or tutoring, our Foundation may grant financial assistance to that family if their personal insurance does not cover the complete cost of treatment for this child.

In addition to the regular program, our Foundation decided to support all American Forces and also Coalition Forces in the invasion of Iraq and taking of Baghdad from 3 March 2003 to 16 July 2003. In the past, the Foundation also included in our program the children who lost a parent from all agencies killed in the murderous attack on the Pentagon. We also decided to go back and give our bonds to children who lost a parent on the USS Cole; the children of the Air Force personnel killed at Khobar Towers; and, with great honor, the twelve children who lost their parent on the space shuttle Columbia disaster.
